Calendar options

From YITH > Booking > Settings > “Customizations” you can manage the way you want to show the date picker and calendar in the booking form.

You can select format of the date and the time picker in the calendar view.

Date and time picker format

  • Date picker format
  • Time picker format

There is also an option to add a custom format. When you select your preference, you can see the preview below your selection.


Now we can go back to YITH > Booking > Settings > “Booking forms” to manage the style and layout of the calendar shown to the customers.

  • In calendar load: How many months are loaded in the calendar, we recommend 3. (You will be able to see the complete year, other months are loaded in AJAX to improve performance).

booking form calendar options

  • Check min/max duration: Enable so the plugin considers the min and max duration to show available dates in the calendar.
  • Update non-available dates on loading (AJAX): Only enable if you use plugins to cache product pages.
  • Disable day if no time is available: Enable to hide days in calendar if no time is available.
